Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every week we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Earl, a American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Earl below!
Breed: American Staffordshire terrier mix
Age: 3 years
Weight: 7 pounds
Earl is a handsome three-year-old "Blue" American Staffordshire mix with bouncy floppy ears and a silly personality that will make anyone smile! Earl was found walking the streets of Rosemead. Although his previous owners were locate, they decided to abandon Earl at the shelter.
Despite this heartbreak, Earl is still a loving boy with a positive outlook in life. He is also smart: he has quickly learned the sit and shake commands and is gentle while taking treats. He is also not shy around the camera, and is into posing for pictures and selfies.
Besides going on brisk walks around the park, his other favorite activity is to lounge near someone's legs while receiving non-stop belly rubs. He is also quite the curious boy and is often on two legs investigating his surroundings while looking for treats. See a short video of Earl here
Earl definitely deserves a loving forever home where he can be a beloved family member, and where his goofy antics and puppy love can be appreciated. If you are that family, please come meet this handsome boy! His adoption fee is $145 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Earl.
